Representative Collins holds her Annual Block Party with UCAN every year because of her connection to youth in care and the incredible work UCAN does in the community and with the youth. It’s a way to connect families while breaking bread, laughing, and bringing the community together to show love and appreciation for caretakers and those who play a job role in our young people’s lives.

Furthermore, it’s a way to share resources and raise awareness, meet your elected officials on all levels of government, and mingle with neighbors.

Representative Collins congratulates Congressman Danny K. Davis (Dist. 7) on the Second Chance Act for the 50th Anniversary of the Safer Foundation.

She also extends her gratitude to all of those who help make the 3rd Annual Block Party a success!
